Beyond Lies the Wub, and The Skull


Published October 8, 2012


LibriVox recording of Beyond the Wub & The Skull, by Philip K. Dick
Read by Phil Chenevert

Two stories in the inimitable Philip Dick style. What is a Wub? A 400 pound slovenly, fat, ungainly, drooling animal that looks like a cross between a walrus and an enormous hog? Well, yes that is pretty much what he looks like and for 50 cents, a good bargain no matter how he tastes. The hungry spaceship crew expect to find out. Of course the Wub may not entirely agree but it doesn't have much to say about it. The second story, The Skull, is a skilful mesh of time travel, unscrupulous governments, prisoners, and religion. With an assassin thrown in for good measure. Enjoy! (summary by Phil Chenevert)

Subject: Weird stories
If you were starving, would you eat an animal that was as intelligent as you are? If you could snack on yourself, would you? These really weird questions are explored in the first story.

I found "The Skull" to be your basic temporal paradox story, proving yet again that time is not for man to tamper with.

Reader was excellent.
